In brief: Depends

Your risk of a chromosome defect @45 is much higher than it was at twenty.
References site 1/50 for down syndrome & add 4% risk of unexpected outcome (for any pregnancy) to any personal health issues & the worry factor can be big. Those eggs have been exposed to your life for 45yrs & reflect any toxic events over that period. Yet that leaves about 90% chance of a successful outcome.
